Who has an actual copy of the new directive?

Posted: Nov 11, 2018 5:17 PM

It is obvious to me that nationwide, review officials have been given a new directive since a couple of weeks ago, about what to now call targeting or not. SEVERAL games had hits late last week, and now this week, that were being called targeting earlier in the season, but now suddenly are not. If the players weren't confused on what to do before, they certainly will be now!

Not that I am complaining about the sudden reverse dewussification of football, but you do not usually make a sea change like this "in season".

Not disagreeing with you, just need examples.

Sorry, my attaching skills do not exist. But, saw one in the Coot game, and one in the A&M game this week, and the obvious one in the LSU / Bama game last week. (I don't blame them for not having the stones to call that one, would have ejected probably the best player on LSWho's team at the start of the game, and would have made conspiracy theorists lose their mind.)

There were some more examples as well, but those immediately came back to me. Any of them were equal to or worse that what got one of our guys ejected a few weeks ago.

I don't think they got a new directive.

I think the booth overturning a few snapped the officials back to reality. When the booth says it's not targeting they have officially proclaimed the guys on the field have made a mistake. Typically, when mistakes on the field are corrected the recipient of the flag isn't penalized.

In the case of an overturn targeting call the 15 yd penalty stands though no one is toss. Why not negate the entire punishment if there was no targeting? Imo, they should. If it's worth 15 yds it's worth tossing a player, if it's not worth tossing a player it's not a bad hit and therefor the penalty should be overturned.

I understand they want to err on the side of player safety but it seems way too easy for the guys on the field to throw the flag and let the guys who can review the play to infinity make the entire decision. Maybe they need a striped yellow/white to send the decision to the booth.

Agree. I am speculating that it is evolution and coaches like Dabo sending the calls they question for clarification to the league offices. The more they get the more change you see. I would hope they start changing what is eligible for review. It would seem to me that the missed call on the punt return interference should be changed to be eligible for review since it would be impossible for any official to always have the angles a camera does. The ball hitting the kicking teams player alone makes that an easy call to overturn that would take seconds to reverse and not impede the game.

David Hood needs to ask CDS this question. We’d all like to know.

Targeting Update Directive 2018-11-1-100A

To be distributed to all FBS Officials:

The ESPN department of the NCAA has made it known to our corporation that there still seems to be a lot of confusion about what a player has to do to receive a targeting penalty. Therefore, we wish to reiterate stipulations that were distributed on August 1, 2018.

1. No Alabama player should ever receive a targeting penalty.
2. Any player on any team that poses a direct or indirect threat to Alabama's ability to make the CFP should receive a targeting penalty each and every time any part of their helmet touches an opposing player.
3. Any other actions taken by a player on any other team that meets the requirements of a targeting penalty should be judged randomly and inconsistently as noted in previous directives.

looks legit.***
